Description

Fatigue Analysis for Many Different Structures and Applications

When structures are subjected to repeated loading and unloading due to material fatigue, they can fail at loads below the static limit. A virtual fatigue analysis can be performed in the COMSOL Multiphysics environment with the Fatigue Module, an add-on to the Structural Mechanics Module. With the stress-based and the strain-based critical plane methods, you can evaluate the high-cycle and low-cycle fatigue regime. When dealing with variable loads, the accumulated damage can be calculated from the load history and the fatigue limit. The fatigue load cycle can be simulated in solid bodies, plates, shells, multibodies, applications involving thermal stress and deformation, and even on piezoelectric devices.

Note: To use any of the COMSOL Modules, a COMSOL Multiphysics Base License pass is required. All module software is included with the COMSOL Multiphysics download file, which means you need to download only once.
